Starved Rock State Park Hiking Adventures

One of my good childhood friends is in town for the week from Boston! Yesterday, we went on a day trip to Starved Rock to go hiking and see one of the more popular canyons there called the LaSalle Canyon. It was such a beautiful day. The weather was partly cloudy and we didn’t have to worry about the sun as much. After getting slightly lost during the beginning of our hike, we finally figured out our trail and walked about 2 miles out to get to the canyon. We encountered other little canyons along the way as well as overlook spots looking out into the Illinois river. We had such a great time and ended up doing about 5 miles that day.
